The Viking Foundation seeks to provide financial assistance to young people and families. This support will only be provided to other 501(c)(3) organizations in three counties in Nebraska (Lancaster), Iowa (Polk) and Colorado (Denver) in the form of modest need-based grants directed to individuals (especially children) and families challenged with education, poverty, housing, gender, mental and physical health, and other issues. The areas of support and core values will be sustained in perpetuity, unchanged by future Boards of Directors of the Foundation. The Foundation's objective is to remain as flexible and creative as possible, in the context of the mission, regarding the nature, size and purpose of the grants awarded.
